It has been more than one year after the April 2015 Nepal Earthquake. Various support and aid flooded into the affected region, within the entire country and countries around the globe, with extensive media coverage and billion of dollars raised in support of relief/recover efforts. This paper presents analysis of various datasets related to this disaster, including GDELT dataset, showing the rise and fall of people's attention to this event. In addition, financial transaction flows reveal a lot about sources of funds and donations, flow of funds among various organizations or sources, and how these funds and donations have been spent or utilized for relief and recovery efforts. Surveys from citizens in affected areas along with the reconstruction dataset help us to capture the efforts of the international and local organizations and governments made on the post-earthquake relief.
